Scientists Discover Genes That Helped Turn Fearsome Wildcats Into House Cats | WIRED

Scientists Discover Genes That Helped Turn Fearsome Wildcats Into House Cats | WIRED | Bioinformatics | Scoop.it
Cats are different than other domesticated animals. Unlike other species tamed for either food or labor, cats specialized in becoming mooches. Sure they catch mice, but it's not like they do it for our sake. Despite these differences, many scientists believe that cats, like all domesticated animals, inherited certain genetic mutations from ancestors who were unafraid of humans. A new study identifies some of the genes that may be responsible for the differences between house cats and their wild
